The recently-released 8th Edition of the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals has the scientific research world in an uproar — and for good reason.

The NIH's seemingly harmless recommendations for cage-space requirements are far larger than the current standard in most labs, and up until now scientists had full latitude on deciding the floor space necessary for lab mice and rats.

In terms of funding, paying close attention to the Guide’s language will help scientists assess whether or not their NIH funding is at risk. These recent changes in the Guide are likely to place scientists into ongoing communication and collaboration with the IACUC, as they work toward figuring out what they need to change and what they can justify to keep status-quo.

OLAW expects scientists to base their animal care and use program on the 8th Edition effective Jan. 1, 2012.

Adhere or Lose Your NIH Funding -- Or Not?

Much of the buzz surrounding the key changes in the Guide’s 8th Edition revolves around just how serious the
agency is about complying with the minimum cage space recommendations. Like many other groups, the American Aging Association (AGE) criticizes the 8th Edition’s ambiguity in what recommendations are mandatory rules versus guidance.

A position statement by the American Physiological Society provides some cautionary advice for investigators
who are reading the 8th Edition as recommendations only. “Since OLAW considers the Guide’s technical standards ‘federally enforceable, ’” you need to “interpret ‘must’ and ‘should’ statements in the Guide as regulations rather than guidelines,” the Society states.

To help scientists better understand NIH's new minimum standards for lab animal care and use, Principal Investigators Association has developed a new, complimentary white paper entitled: Your NIH Funding at Risk: New OLAW Guide Sets a High Bar for Cage Sizes.
